HC Deb 07 December 1950 vol 482 cc523-4
45. Mr. Erroll

asked the Prime Minister if he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT an up-to-date comprehensive list of all members appointed to central and regional nationalised boards of a commercial character, with details of individual salaries, pensions and expenses allowed, together with a separate list showing all individuals holding more than one appointment and what those appointments are.

The Lord President of the Council (Mr. Herbert Morrison)

I have been asked to reply. I have arranged for the information to be published in the form of a White Paper, which will be available shortly.

Mr. Erroll

Can the right hon. Gentleman say when it will be published, so that we may look out for this interesting information?

Mr. Morrison

I hope it will be before the Christmas Recess. I cannot be quite sure, but I believe it will be.

Mr. Woodburn

When my right hon. Friend publishes the White Paper, will he include the salaries of people in private industry who are doing similar work and thus show how many people are making great sacrifices to serve the public interest?

Mr. Speaker

That does not arise out of this Question.
